There are plenty of email services out there but the more well known/established are Microsoft's Hotmail or Live mail, Yahoo and Google's gmail. I find myself sticking with Yahoo for a number of reasons - 1 I get a really good News service - which rarely fails to delight me when I go to my email, 2 I can stay logged in for 2 weeks on my computer 3 Buttons - like delete! -are really simple and easy to locate - there is also a spam button which I think helps alert the service of spam emails (if enough receipients deem it so) - this keeps the spam down - I actually think it is good to get some spam so you can stay in touch with recognizing it! 4 I can expand/contract the inbox and email content areas - would love to know what others here find useful in an email service
As for me I use Gmail. I used to use Yahoo mail but I decided to switch for the following reasons:
1. Gmail POP3 sercvice is free.
2. Easy to use interface
3. Loads faster
In general, I like a webmail service that has good spam protection, filters, labels or organization tools, compact and comfortable to read.
thanks for sharing leakeem - pop3 is an email client service isn't it? To be used with (say) Outlook - is that right?
i'm not keen on the free services such as gmail and hotmail. I sent a message (i don't use the "free" services for my private email) to a friend who uses gmail, with a subject line of 'new pup'. My friend's gmail account had ads about pups pop up upon receipt of my message......i don't like how it appears that 'bots' picked up on my subject line and then attached ads relevant to pups/dogs on my friends gmail account.....no privacy!...so i won't use subject lines anymore now that i am aware of how the free services appear to work.
very unique angle - cheers SomewayOuttaHere - I would have thought gmail was very tame when it comes to ads - I actually rarely use my gmail account as it is too drab - no news, subdued ads not real pretty email service - ads and news create a buzz and can be very creative - if relevant to me that is! I don't really care that bots are picking up my content/pages surfed and serving ads accordingly - when I say I don't care what I really mean is I don't see a privacy issue as a problem (except if I'm looking at porn! - I am a bit shy there but in a better world I wouldn't care about that either - not in denial - I am a man after all) Thanks for your comment
